Property Description

Sited gracefully on an unusually expansive, one-third acre parcel in the heart of Westwood's prime Little Holmby, this substantial home has been updated tastefully and with sensitivity to and respect for its architectural roots. Built masterfully in 1936, its evocative period details remain lovingly cared for, intact and gleaming...wood floors, crown moldings and more. With five bedrooms, there is plenty of room for everyone and its fabulous, nearly 1000 square-foot Guest House adds a compound-like feel and function to this very special property. The stately entry foyer opens to the elegant formal living room, warmed by a romantic fireplace, and brightened by its big bay window taking in the glorious front yard and neighborhood views. The formal dining room with its charming wainscoting also has front-yard vistas and opens to the well-appointed, updated kitchen complete with a spacious eating area and easy access to the adjacent family room and to the backyard. The family room is large yet is very cozy in feel and has plenty of room for relaxing in front of the TV. A fifth bedroom and bath, a chic powder room, and a laundry room complete the first level. All four upstairs bedrooms are roomy and bright, the terrific primary suite complete with vaulted ceilings and a fabulous newer, spa-like bathroom. There's a huge glass-enclosed shower and a separate, sumptuous tub. The three secondary bedrooms are all adjacent to the primary and are lovely. The backyard is quite extensive and built for grand entertaining. Serve casual meals and cocktails to guests on the sunny back patio through both French doors and a massive, wide-open pass-through kitchen window. Kids can play easily and supervised on the nearby grassy yard space. Up a few steps to the second tier of the yard, find an enormous, hotel-like swimmer's pool surrounded by more play space and many areas perfect for alfresco lounging and sunning. Graciously open to the pool area is the very welcoming and functional guest house outfitted with a fireplace, a bath, a dry sauna and a kitchenette. There is significant storage throughout. Also, it is situated in the coveted Warner Avenue Elementary School District and located in close proximity to UCLA and to the fine shopping and dining in nearby Westwood, Century City and Beverly Hills.
